The first series of Hinterland reached its bloody climax with DCI Tom Mathias' future hanging in the balance. Now, weeks later, our troubled detective is forced to return to the front line after an arson attack on an isolated farmhouse leaves a mother and child fighting for their lives. Drawn into a community of failing farms and long-standing feuds, Mathias and his partner DI Mared Rhys will be pushed to the brink as they try to solve this disturbing case.
HINTERLAND is noir crime drama set in the scenic, centuries-old town of Aberystwyth, Wales. The area is a natural crucible of colliding worlds - a place where history, myth and tradition come face-to-face with modern life - but its panoramic vistas and quaint facade hide a multitude of sins. Into this realm steps the enigmatic DCI Tom Mathias (Richard Harrington - Poldark), a brilliant but troubled man on the run from his past. Together with his equally intelligent and complex partner DI Mared Rhys (Mali Harries - Foyle's War), Mathias tackles mystifying murder cases that take viewers from the windswept sand dunes of the Welsh coastline to the badlands and beyond.
